Grape: Cabernet Franc
Region: Loire Valley, France
👁 deep ruby
👃🏾 raspberry, dark cherry, graphite, green pepper, and herbs
👅 light- to medium-bodied, fun wine with fresh berry and herb notes, slightly effervescent with tingly acid and racy vibrancy
From Touraine in the Loire Valley. 50 year old Cab Franc vines; grapes are hand harvested destemmed, the juice remains in contact with the skins for 5-6 weeks with elevage takes place in cement tanks for a gentle introduction of oxygen to soften the wine. The wine is bottled lightly filtered with a small addition of sulfur. Light and fun Cab Franc with fresh berry and herb notes, slightly––notice I said "slightly"––effervescent with tingly acid and insane racy vibrancy. One of those cool natural wines that you don't need to think too much about!
